In Birdy Bounce, you are steering a young bird on its way up to the horizon by using the accurate tilt controls of your Windows Phone 7 device. Be warned, the way is dangerous and many birds before you fell to their death. Only the fittest will survive this dangerous travel – how far can you get?
The gameplay experience provides a vast amount of different platform types you can use to jump higher and higher. There will be breakable, moving or thorny platforms and even some that give you a turbo boost and some that vanish before your eyes when you aren’t fast enough.
You can find more information in the game thread.
